Our second favourite dinner with the first being Teppan Edo - on the good advice of the waiter we had - gnocchi, rib eye and tenderloin - cooked to perfection - best gnocchi and sauce - good desserts - great service - will return - easy monorail ride from MK so it's a keeper!

Pros:

Food, visiting the contemporary

Cons:

none

I would go over 10 here if I could. In a week where we ate at a lot of high end places, this was the best we had hands down. The service was top notch and the food was great. Steaks were cooked perfect, sides were very good, just blown away. I even made a comment to my wife that I felt this blew California Grill out of the water. The Wave is now on a regular rotation for restaurants for our visits.

Pros:

Food, Service

Cons:

Always on my meal list, never disappoints.

Fantastic, knowledgeable servers, nice variety of menu choices.

Their crab cake appetizer is not as good as it used to be, far from it actually - choose something else

The pork chop was excellent, the strip steak as well (I've also had the beef tenderloin in past visits - highly popular for a delicious reason).

A bit of a hidden gem, like most resort restaurants.

Pros:

location, food, service

Cons:

loud

In our 10 days of dining, this was our favorite meal. Everything was done to perfection. The waiter was excellent from explaining all aspects of the menu, specials, dining plan questions, etc...The food was delightful and flavorful. Everything was cooked perfectly. This is one hidden gem that will be on our must do list for next trip.

Pros:

Food, service, ambiance

Cons:

None

As a professional Chef there are tree thing I look for in a restaurant.

A good clean environment
knowledgeable staff
and professional Chefs


So far every restaurant on the Disney property follows a quote from the film "ratatouille."
"Anyone can cook" and after many disappoints from countless restaurants, The Wave will surprise you in countless ways.


One person in my party has a severe food allergy (celiac disease) and the Sous Chef Kimi Holt came out and talked with us.

To see a level of professionalism from her and finding out everything is made from scratch made this Chef tst her skills.


I had a grilled Beef tenderloin cooked medium rare with ductchess potatoes topped with sour cream and chives, sautéed green beans.


I have dined in some of the best restaurants in the world, worked with world class chefs and spend 17 years of my life as a Professional Chef.

After some careful thought and consideration I can say The wave is one of my top 5 favorite restaurants in the world. I shall be returning as a regular customer.

Kimi Holt is one of the best Chefs employed by Disney.

Pros:

Porofessional Chefs that will impress you

Cons:

No sweet tea in stock

Best meal of our trip. Had beef tenderloin, salmon, cheese tray and wine from a small winery we had once visited and loved, Trentadue. Server had great info on farm v. wild salmon as well as the various cheeses. Smaller, quieter dining room was nice after all the crowds elsewhere.

Pros:

Food; Server's knowledge; Setting

Cons:

None

The food here was delicious. I originally had reservations for the California Grill, but I made an error in planning out my dining plan, and the Cali Grill took 2 meals, which I didn't have budgeted. I was disappointed in having to "downgrade" to the Wave, but it turned out great.
We were there the first night, so I don't remember everything we ordered, but I do remember it was great. I got a steak for dinner that I loved and was cooked perfectly, and the sides were really really good. The "bacon and eggs" app, which was pork belly with an egg yolk over cheesy grits was incredible. High quality like that you'd get in a high end restaurant.
This was my favorite sit down dinner while I was in Disney.

Pros:

Food; friendly service

Cons:

Slow

My wife and I ate here on Sunday, April 19, 2015. We did not have any advanced dining reservations, but only had a short 3-4 minute wait when we showed up at 5:30pm. Once seated out server quickly showed up and took our drink orders. When she returned, she offered some great suggestion regarding the menu. My wife got the Tenderloin and I got the Braised Short Rib.

This meal was easily, and by far, the best one we had on this trip to WDW. The tenderloin was fork tender and my beef rib was supper moist and tender as well. The sides for both dishes were also excellent. We both really enjoyed our food. I’d recommend to anyone as the prices were very reasonable.

Pros:

Great Food, Great Service

Cons:

none

The food was good nothing more. There is no real atmosphere there to tell you that you are anywhere of note, could be the corner restaurant in your own neighborhood. Will not revisit unless they do something to peek my interest.

Pros:

good food

Cons:

atmosphere
